It has been almost a month since my last post. I have been so busy working since I arrived in Aberdeen, I just haven't had time to post or much to post.
I have been working as a temporary employee at 3M and my hours ran out on October 30, also on that same day 3M offered me a regular full time position with them. So I have had the last 10 days off and will be starting work again today at 4 p.m.
Of course while I was off we went back home to Minnesota to spend sometime with family and friends. I got to stitch with my buds on Halloween. We had a great time. I was busy all week with catching up with our family and friends. I didn't stitch as much as I thought I would, but when we returned home last Friday I had to whole weekend to stitch and do some finishing.
Here are my results:

I finished the stitching on this stocking for my granddaughter. Now I plan on doing the finishing work this weekend. I am very relived to have this done.

These were two pieces I received from Margit in private exchanges we have done this year. I really like how they both turned out. The pin keep is from Prairie Schooler and the framed piece is a Little House Needlework design. Thank you Margit.
I received this from Nicky for the Summer Fair and Square exchange. It is a Little House Needlework design.
I just received this from Peg for the Fall Fair and Square. I decided to make it into a fob. I think it turned out great.
Here is a picture of all of my finishes I did over the weekend. It feels good to have gotten these done. I also finished off an ornament, but that was for an exchange so I will post it when it arrives at it's new home.

Thanks for taking the time to stop and Happy Stitching!!!

I love that Ackworth Friendship Square! LOL! I bet it is a great feeling to get Emily's stocking done. I like that design. And, all your finishes! You were quite busy! That witch is intriguing. Good to see you post again. Talk to you soon.

Joan you do such nice finishing! All of these are wondeful but I'm really drawn to the fall fob you made, it's so sweet! Congratulations on the finishes!

Oh Joan, so many lovely finishes. I particularly love the strawberry house pinkeep. I wish I could get there, too (I mean to have so many finishes over the weekend, lol).
